Feb. 11 – Three Cards and Letters to Family

Today I sent three cards and letters, all of them to family members:

  • A Valentine’s Day card to my mother in Williamsburg, Virginia.
  • A Get Well Soon card to my father in northern California.
  • A birthday card and letter to my older sister, also in northern California. (Actually, at the moment we are the same age, but she will be older again on her birthday next week. We were born in February and December of the same year, so we’re twins for ten months of each year!) The card shows the 1902 Klimt painting Portrait of Emilie Floge.

Here is a link to my blog post, in case you want to see that Klimt painting:

Month of Letters, Day 11

Items to the UK, Argentina and Japan.

last lettermo mailing!

Eleven postcards and one large envelope with long letter and a zine. Got them hand-cancelled at the local postal outlet and the clerks got a good chuckle from the profusion of vintage small-denomination stamps.

Five more….

Last night I dropped into the mailbox 3 big envelopes with zines inside, and 2 postcards.

I’ve been falling behind with the correspondence, and have well and truly dropped the ball with logging things. I am unconcerned about this, as the mailing’s the real thing, the website activity’s just an adjunct.

Today I posted 3 Valentines hand-folded envelopes sealed with wax. My hands are a glorious mess of ink, soot and dye.

To the President and Beyond!

Sent a card yesterday but wasn’t able to access from home as I don’t recall my username and password apparently.
